The constant internal check I gained in CADES is essential as it is very easy to get caught up in the day to day without taking a step back to analyse the wider impact of your actions, which in this line of work can affect many lives at times.

The interdisciplinary research seminar lies at the core of the CADES programme. It offers its students the possibility to engage in leading-edge research. CADES students are visionary people who reflect on possible futures of the world and various ways of acting upon these futures. Organised in small interdisciplinary teams, students explore a topical subject in development, analyse and assess the theoretical and practical context of the people involved and discuss with a central actor if a - and which - strategy could be a culture sensitive answer to the issues raised.

Check out students’ recent research on

> Seeds of Knowledge; on seed saving networks and knowledge in Belgium

> The impact of climate change on female farmers in Ghana’s Northern Volta region
